"Azogue" is an electronic journal covering all
aspects of the history of alchemy. It tries to stimulate
and communicate research, theory, methodology and
analytical strategies on this role. At the same time
"Azogue" approaches alchemy from a consistently
historical and comparative perspective, emphasizing the
rich diversity of the alchemical tradition.
featured scholarly articles, research notes and
commentary on the history of alchemy and relations to
other fields, chemistry, medicine, philosophy, religion,
art history, iconography, etc. Review essays, web sites,
and book reviews on new publications in the field are
also included. All papers should be rigorously
documented, with references to primary sources.
We try to explore the
history of specific alchemical ideas or authors, to
examine representative historical texts, figures and
topics, to research into history of particular movements
and related currents (paracelsianism, rosacrucianism, etc.),
or to study comparatively the underlying assumptions of
different author and theorical perspectives.
Thinking about those
objetives we also prepared research tools for studients.
Resources. This comprehensive guide to
the history of alchemy provides detailed
information on academic journals, research
centers, libraries and bookstores devoted to

Library. This section have been
proposed for the direct access to a large library
of electronic documents. We had collected
original titles devoted to alchemy, "chemical
philosophy" and paracelsianism. Most of the
works which had a relevant impact on the
development of alchemy are also listed. Among
them, there are a large number of alchemical
compendia (Quadriga aurifera; De

aliquot chemici; Musæum Hermeticum
reformatum et amplificatum; Bibliotheca
chemica curiosa; etc.). All the works could
be downloaded page by page, as small JPEG or PDF
files. The digitalization of all titles had been
supported and hosted by some institutions which

Bibliothèque interuniversitaire de Médecine,
